Thanks smj999smj.smj999smj wrote:I use Gates component kits from Rockauto.com, which have the updated belt. Nice thing about them is that they have a limited-lifetime warranty. If the belts starts to crack or squeak or if the tensioner spring gets a little week, I order a whole new kit under warranty and send them back the old parts for refund, minus the cost of shipping. For just the belt and the tensioner, it's Gates 38378K for $42. If you want the belt, tensioner and the idler pulley, it's Gates 90K37378A for $70. If I was buying "only" the belt, I usually go with Bando. Gates makes the OE parts for Nissan in North America.
Is there any reason why a Gates belt wouldn't be just as compatable as a Bando belt with OEM pulley & OEM updated tensioner?
